Read a book, defend equality

In honor of the striking down of California's Proposition 8 by U.S. District Chief Judge Vaughn R. Walker, Jacket Copy at the LA Times Book Review has posted a list of 20 classic works of gay literature. And while a tiny bit predictable and bland (I've never really liked Fun Home, and Well of Loneliness, while groundbreaking, is a bit of a snoozefest) there are also some truly stellar works and oddball picks too. Definitely worth checking out.
